PURCELL, Okla. (AP) -- The owner and five employees of a Purcell funeral home were arrested on drug charges Tuesday morning during a raid of the funeral home.

McClain County Deputy David Turley says the six are suspected of distributing methamphetamine, marijuana and prescription drugs from the Yoakum-Damet Funeral Home.

Turley says the arrests come after a year-long investigation by the sheriff's department and Purcell police and formal charges are pending.

The six are being held in the McClain County jail.
